I have been down for a while, in so much overwhelming pain and bone crushing fatigue. I'm pushing myself just to get out of bed each day. I haven't been able to get out in weeks, even to go to the grocery store never mind being able to clean my house. My husband helps out so much ,bless his heart, but he can't do what i need done. The stress of the disorganization, household chores undone ect.. are adding to my pain, stress, and general lack of well being. Being that most of us face these issues I wondered if anyone has found any way of attaining household help. I would think there would be a way to have medicare help since I have been deemed permanently, totally disabled under their criteria yet in the past even when I was in the wheel chair I was only able to have a nurse, home healthaide for personal care which didn't include house work, Even a homemaker could only care for my shower area and make my bed. I need more help then that. I have major organization issues, due to not being able to do activities of daily living, days turn into months worth of things to be tackled and I just can't do it. I'm feeling so frustrated adding to the exhaustion and pain. With little sleep my cognitive function is so bad that if I do have a day when I'm physically a bit more able to try to accomplish something I can't manage to focus well enough for long enough and end up pulling things out only to end up with a worse mess. I try to do one area at a time, take the elephant on one bite at at time as they say, but with the Lyme disease, ME/CF and Fibromyalgia the brain and body are just not able to carry it out to fruition. I am not able to attend a church anymore or I would turn there, where I used to help others in my situation but I have humbly reached out only to be told I have to be a member. I can't afford to hire someone so I don't know what to do. Has anyone else successfully been able to find help with house maintenance? I have called elder services and another agency I can think of. Thanks in advance ~ Blessings ~ Sally Sorry this is so long.
